var genericGreet = function() {
        return "Hello, my name is " + this.name;

      var andrew = {
        name: "Andrew",

      var ryan = {
        name: "Ryan",

You should be defining genericGreet as as an element of the ryan and andrew variables using the following syntax:

greet : genericGreet

also genericGreet is defined as variable calling an anonymous function, and not a function in its own right so you do not need to add ().
